Kanye West is returning to make waves on the Saturday Night Live stage. Get it? His album is WAVES... Anyway, the rapper will be the musical guest on the Saturday, Feb. 13 show. Melissa McCarthy will return as host.

This is West's seventh time performing on the Saturday Night Live stages and McCarthy's fourth time hosting. The McCarthy-West episode airs the week after Larry David's hosting debut. He'll be joined by the 1975 on the Saturday, Feb. 6 show. You know what to expect then? David's Bernie Sanders impression, naturally.

West's seventh album, WAVES, drops on February 11. The musician has sold more than 32 million albums worldwide and won 21 Grammys. McCarthy is currently starring in CBS's Mike & Molly, which she took home an Emmy for, and has The Boss and Ghostbusters coming out in theaters.

Now the million dollar question: Will West's Twitter feud with Wiz Khalifa get the Saturday Night Live treatment?

Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays (duh) at 11:30 on NBC.

(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
